Dr Bawumia has taken his campaign to another level to engage residents on what he plans to do should the NPP be elected as the next government.
Thousands of enthusiastic supporters of the NPP in Ashaiman on Friday offered a tumultuous welcome to their running mate Dr Mahamudu Bawumia.
The visit to Ashaiman was to herald the door-to-door campaign of Dr Bawumia to galvanise support for the party towards the 2016 general elections.
Dr Bawumia who was accompanied by some leading members of the party visited the Ashaiman Traditional Council and to interact with the traditional rulers and sell his campaign message to the people.
He said the door-to-door campaign had proved to be an effective means to reach out to specific groups and individuals to interact and know their problems and discuss how they could be solved.
Dr Bawumia's message of hope was strongly met at the Ashaiman Fitter Line, Main Station, Central Business Market and New Tulaku, where he had to continue to strain his voice to get his message to the crowd who, at some point, was difficult to control as everyone wanted to shake hands with the guest.
He appealed to Ashaiman to 'drop the NDC yam' in 2016 due to the government's mismanagement of the economy as a result of its incompetence and insensitivity.
He said, "As if their mismanagement of the economy is not enough, the NDC has plunged Ghana into an unpardonable darkness and so businesses are collapsing. More workers are being laid off as a result of the dumsor, which is becoming worse in each day.
"But I can assure you that in Nana Akufo-Addo and the NPP, there is hope for Ghana after you have given the NPP the chance by dropping the 'bad yam' when you go to the ballots in 2016.
Nana Akufo-Addo and the NPP have the men and brains to put Ghana on the strong footing former President Kufuor bequeathed to the NDC in 2008."
Nii Annan Adzor I, Ashaiman Regent, said Ashaiman will always be ready to receive the NPP and all political parties and indicated that Ashaiman, like all other traditional areas in Ghana, needs development "and so we are ready to work with any political party that will help develop our area."
